I changed my cell phone number that was used for account verification on Yahoo. I neglected to change it in Yahoo, so therefore I cannot access my email while I'm away on vacation. How can I gain access to my email without a valid account verification phone number? I did not previously choose to answer to account verification questions.

Yahoo uses three recovery/verification methods: phone number, alternate email address, and security questions. If your account is configured only with a phone number that you no longer use, you will need to contact Yahoo Customer Care team using 800-730-2669 phone number or Yahoo Help page. They will provide you the necessary instructions to recover your account.
